HOLDING THE MAN
Stars: Ryan Corr, Sarah Snook, Francesco Ferdinandi
Tim and John fell in love and embarked on a forbidden high school romance that was to last a lifetime. Together they conquered countless prejudices and challenges to become champions of gay rights.
Holding The Man is a remarkable true-life love story of Timothy Conigrave and John Caleo and their enduring love for each other has been immortalised in Tim’s own cult classic memoir and in Tommy Murphy’s award winning stage play, which has now been adapted for the screen.
Starring Ryan Corr (Wolf Creek 2) and Craig Stott play the two lovers, with solid support from some of Australia and New Zealand’s finest actors including Sarah Snook, Geoffrey Rush, Kerry Fox, Guy Pearce and Anthony LaPaglia.
